Lafarge Tarmac will be holding a public exhibition at Whitwell Community Centre from 14:00-19:00 Wednesday 10th June and 10:00-15:00 on Thursday 11th June about their proposals to extend the life of the quarry and access new areas of limestone earlier than originally planned.
Lafarge Tarmac wish to get the views of local residents on the proposals and staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Update (03/06/2015): You can see the proposals below, they are to extend the quarrying to the two areas marked in green towards Franklin Avenue and the right hand side towards Southfield Lane and two smaller areas at the bottom end of the site. The extensions will allow them to extract the limestone required to mix and maintain the correct product grades that they need for their customers. It is estimated that this will further extend the life of the quarry by another 15 years on top of the current 10 year expected life.
